Tip #8: Do a DIY sleep clinic!

SleepRate is an iOS app that works with iPhones, iPads and iPods. Time describes it:

“SleepRate is an app that helps people who can’t or won’t go to a sleep clinic to generate, in DIY fashion, the same kind of information that all the monitors do to help sleep experts design the right behavioral therapy for patients.”

The app ($99) “can detect sleep disturbances by mathematically defining the connection between sleep, heart rate and respiration,” Time says. It comes with a kit including a sleep plan, a heart-rate monitor that’s worn on the chest and wirelessly transmits data to your phone, and a Stanford University proprietary CBTI treatment for sleep problems.
